The Most Dangerous Man in America?: Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition

The Most Dangerous Man in America?: Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Televangelist Pat Robertson has built one of the most powerful religious-political movements in American history. His Christian Coalition - with its '700 Club' broadcasting fundamentalism tinged with right-wing politics to an audience of millions, its American Center for Law and Justice legal action group attempting to impose far-right Christian ideas via the courts, and the growing number of graduates from its Regents University - wields a mighty sword within the Republican party in at least 25 states while GOP national leaders and presidential hopefuls court its favour. Despite his power, many Americans are not aware of Robertson's extreme political views or his goals for the United States. This book examines the role Robertson plays in contemporary politics and his efforts to influence American society through his various political organisations, businesses, and broadcast empire.
